What type of bikes are covered under the membership insurance benefit?
The membership insurance benefit provides cover for the use of bikes for training and event purposes only. This excludes cover for anyone using an illegal bike.
What is club discount?
British Triathlon offers a discounted price on the individual, coach and family membership packages for individuals who are also members of an affiliated club as this recognises their involvement in their local club and community.
I am a Triathlon England Member, does this mean I am not a British Triathlon Member?
British Triathlon is the national governing body for the Home Nations of Triathlon England, Triathlon Scotland and Welsh Triathlon. When you become a British Triathlon member, you will also choose which one of the British Triathlon Home Nations you want to become a member of: Triathlon England, Triathlon Scotland or Welsh Triathlon. This means that you are a member of British Triathlon and Triathlon England.
Do I have to be a member to take part in an event?
No. Non-members are welcome at most events listed on our website. However, the event organiser will charge non-members a Day Membership fee to compete. Also, to win titles and medals at your Home Nation's Championships or to represent Great Britain internationally you must be a British Triathlon member.
I have joined using my email address. I want to add my children using the same email address but the registration system won't let me. What should I do?
Please contact British Triathlon Membership Services and we will help you.
Can I set up a family membership?
Yes, British Triathlon offers family membership. Read more here.
I would like to race abroad, will my membership cover me?
Your licence is endorsed by British Triathlon for the purpose of competing in International competitions. Certainly for ETU and ITU Age-Group Championships it does. This means that in these events, and other overseas events you may not have to pay the day license fee and you may be covered for some elements under our insurance policy. However, we do strongly recommend that you have travel insurance that provides cover for racing abroad, including medical expenses and treatment, repatriation and cancellation/curtailment cover. You can read more about racing abroad here.
I am intending to do a triathlon in France and a triathlon training camp in Spain. Will the insurance cover these activities abroad?
The public liability insurance and personal accident insurance will cover these activities abroad, and you will not need to take out a day membership to participate in the event. However, these policies are not a substitute for medical insurance or travel insurance; especially when travelling and competing abroad. It is strongly recommended that members take out relevant travel/medical insurance and/or cycle insurance to cover equipment. Please also ensure that you have the relevant EHIC (European Health Insurance Card) available.
Can I join and pay by Direct Debit?
Yes, you are able to join and make the initial payment by direct debit.
You have changed the online joining process, why?
We want to make it as easy as possible to join, and offer a range of payment methods to do this. We encourage members to pay by direct debit to help make sure their membership doesn't lapse. You can still pay by credit or debit cards.
